Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (752 Customer Reviews)


This is a great hitch. Highly recommend this hitch. This is my second curt hitch, first one was on my ford f450 but unfortunately that one wouldn’t fit on my new truck, do to shank size.


This hitch has worked out great for me over the last year. It’s very heavy duty and easy to adjust. I’ve hauled a 9,000 lb boat, long-distance on numerous occasions without issue. I also haul a landscape trailer on a daily basis weighing over 5,000lbs and haven’t had a single issue. Great hitch that was significantly cheaper than others and is very high quality. I’ve recommended it to several people and I wouldn’t hesitate to buy again. The only thing I would like to have now in a hitch is a tongue weight gauge, but it isn’t necessary.

It just so happens we offer a tongue weight scale as part # 5780...


Excellent product that fit my need perfectly. I tow with 2 trucks, one needs a drop and the other needs it up a bit. I usually leave it on one truck but I also tow 3 different trailers with it and was sick of having to carry all sorts of hitches.
I've had no complaints at all with it, I'd definitely buy recommend it to anyone.



After a year its still working great, no issues to report!!

@Shane Good deal, glad you're happy with the # C45900 ball mount!


Great price. Worked perfectly. E-trailer always has what I am looking for with fast shipping. Great product and very well constructed.



It works perfect. Adjustable so I can tow my boat, and dump trailer. Easy to use and still looks brand new.


I am very impressed with C45900 ball mount. Curt is an excellent manufacturer. The only thing I did not like are the snap rings on the pins. I have seen those get hooked unintentionally or be pulled to steal the ball mount. I replaced Curt's pins with Grade 8 bolts, drilled holes and secured with a padlock. It would be nice if someone made a locking hitch pin with enough span for the channel. I added the reflective tape for higher visibility. I live in Phoenix where they have a plant. Please run this idea by them and let me know what they think. The two locking hitch pins would only raise the price by $50. If you have a vendor who has longer pins please let me know. Using unsecured pins is asking for trouble. Thanks--Jerry


I like the overall versatility of this hitch but the only reason I’m not giving it 5 stars is because Curt is manufactured in the USA. The box I received says it was made in India! I hope this metal is strong and well made cause my horses lives depend on it.

Etrailer Expert

Heather A.


Thank you for your review. The Curt hitches are assembled in the USA but not the ball mounts. The only adjustable ball mounts that we carry that are made in the USA are the B&W adjustable ball mounts like part BWTS10040B.


Pictures attached. Curt makes such great quality products. I love this new hitch.



Great hitch, after one year I still recommend. Get one!


I have had this ball mount on my truck for about a year now. Has held up well with no real issues. One pen did disappear earlier this year, but not sure if it somehow worked out on its own or if someone stole it. Replacement was easy to find. Easy to adjust, does not make any noticeable noise.


Wroks great. I can adjust this hitch for all 6 of my trailers.


I am completely satisfied with the adjustable hitch. It's heavy duty and easy to adjust.


This hitch mount replaced about 6 others that I kept in my truck under the seat. This hitch is so easy to use. It's strength is so much more than my truck can handle so I have vot been worried about it failing. Adjusting takes seconds. I wish I would have had this for longer and I have had two friends that bought the same one. We all love them. I'm currently a "Band Dad" and I have to often pull about a half dozen trailers. I gave my old hitches to the band and.... everyone wants to borrow mine if I'm not using. Game changer for sure.


Excellent product. Installed in minutes. I tow a 14 k lb dump trailer. Needed the additional rise on the hitch. The draw bar is adjustable so that I can tow my utility trailer as well. High quality like most products I have purchased from



Very good except the Rubber s have worn causing hitch to vibrate


Extremely heavy duty hitch assembly. Well worth the cost


Very quick in delivery. Received it 1 day earlier than expected. This ballmount is definitely heavy duty. Haven't used it yet but looks like it will handle 14,000 Lbs with ease.


Thanx for a high quality hitch with low or no noise.I will be towing a 12000 lb 30Ft.Rinker.
The hitch is very easy to adjust.



Still Great


My package came in opened and I’m not sure all the parts are even there. I can send a picture to show you what was in the package and how the package was when I received it. It was open on two ends.

Sorry to hear about this. Customer Service will contact you.


This ball mount turned out better than I was expecting.
Looking forward to putting this to work.


The hitch worked great I bought this hitch plus a Curt Lunette ring C48660 for my pull truck. Used the hitch setup for the first time last night and worked flawless, I would definitely recommend this setup to my friends the price was great and the hitch is well built.Thanks etrailer


This hitch is as KISS as an adjustable hitch could be. Built very well, with good thick gussets, a solid receiver shank, perfect welds and a good powder coat. The fact the trailer balls are built from one forged piece means no worry about a nut loosening and no weld to potentially break. I would go ahead and recommend you buy two replacement rubber isolators and just go ahead and put them in the other two holes in the hitch so no matter where the ball is it has some contact with an isolator without having to move the one it comes with. I highly recommend etrailer, they have great prices and fast shipping and they put out a lot of very helpful videos and pictures of the products they are selling.


Nice heavy duty hitch, adjustability is nice good price


Still haven't towed anything with it yet but it seems very solid. I do think it will rattle some in the receiver because it is loose in my 2" receiver on my 2019 F150.


Ordered Curt C45900 for my work truck. Chose this product because it's rated slightly above what I need, it's steel and highly adjustable. Etrailers website is very easy to navigate, has a lot of installed photos for comparisons and has fast shipping. Will continue to shop with Etrailer as needs arise.


Great customer service and quick delivery. The lady that helped me was very knowledgable and friendly. I highly recommend this company. Thanks for the great experience.


I had the 2.5" receiver for my 2014 Ram 2500 so it was a no brainer to go with the Curt 2" receiver for my 2002 Chevy 2500.



Still very happy with this receiver. Highly recommend it.


Love this ball mount, i just bought a new dump trailer and needed something with some meat to it. This product it solid steel and can with stand a very heavy load. I would reccomend this product to anyone. I started with another brand product and it just could not handle the tough jobs.

  • Can the Curt Channel Style Adjustable Ballmount be Installed Facing Up or Down

Attached is a review video as well as some photos to help demonstrate this. Obviously you'll be able to use any of the mounting holes whether it is facing up or down.

  • What Hitch Ball Size is Needed to Tow a Hi-Lo Towrite 22T Trailer
    The hitch ball size of your Hi-Low Towrite 22T depends on the model year. In the 90's it appears they used to use 2 inch hitch balls and then moved to 2-5/16 inches. All of the models from that point have a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball. If you want to be sure you have the correct hitch ball on hand, I recommend the Curt Adjustable Ball Mount # C45900 which has both hitch ball sizes and will give you adjustability to tow level.

  • Will Using Curt Adjustable Ball Mount with a Reducer Sleeve Lower the Ball Mount Capacity
    I spoke with my contact at Curt about adjustable ball mount # C45900. He said that if you used a reducer sleeve that it will not reduce the capacity of the ball mount. You will want to check with the hitch manufacturer (or Dodge if it is an OEM hitch) to determine if the capacity of the hitch itself is reduced.

    The Curt # C45900 is not cast. It is constructed of a solid piece of 2x2 inch steel bar stock welded to the channel mount.

When the 2-5/16 inch ball is used, the adjustable ball mount has a 14K capacity which is reduced to 10K with the 2 inch ball. The hall height can be adjusted from a drop of 6 inches to a rise of 5-1/4 inches in 1 inch increments. I've linked to a product demonstration video...
